My soul cleaveth to the dust *
O quicken thou me, according to thy word.
I have acknowledged my ways, and thou heardest me *
O teach me thy statutes.
Make me to understand the way of thy commandments *
and so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
My soul melteth away for very heaviness *
comfort thou me according unto thy word.
Take from me the way of lying *
and cause thou me to make much of thy law.
I have chosen the way of truth *
and thy judgements have I laid before me.
I have stuck unto thy testimonies *
O Lord, confound me not.
I will run the way of thy commandments *
when thou hast set my heart at liberty.
Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes *
and I shall keep it unto the end.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law *
yea, I shall keep it with my whole heart.
Make me to go in the path of thy commandments *
for therein is my desire.
Incline my heart unto thy testimonies *
and not to covetousness.
O turn away mine eyes, lest they behold vanity *
and quicken thou me in thy way.
O stablish thy word in thy servant *
that I may fear thee.
Take away the rebuke that I am afraid of *
for thy judgements are good.
Behold, my delight is in thy commandments *
O quicken me in thy righteousness.
Et veniat super me
Let thy loving mercy come also unto me, O Lord *
even thy salvation, according unto thy word.
So shall I make answer unto my blasphemers *
for my trust is in thy word.
O take not the word of thy truth utterly out of my mouth *
for my hope is in thy judgements.
So shall I alway keep thy law *
yea, for ever and ever.
And I will walk at liberty *
for I seek thy commandments.
I will speak of thy testimonies also, even before kings *
and will not be ashamed.
And my delight shall be in thy commandments *
which I have loved.
My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved *
and my study shall be in thy statutes.
